Comics News: The Darkness comes to iPhone and iPad


Top Cow Productions, Image Comics, and comiXology have announced the release of The Darkness app for iPhone and iPad. Launched with over 50 issues — all available for purchase at $1.99 each and with much more on the way —The Darkness app will become the favorite of current fans of Top Cow’s long lasting hit series and new fans alike.

“The combination of The Darkness II video game, the release of The Darkness #100 this February, the fifteenth anniversary of the character, and the new creative team coming onboard the ongoing The Darkness series all are going to give Jackie Estacado an unprecedented level of exposure in popular culture,” explained Top Cow Publisher Filip Sablik. “Besides, who doesn’t want a little Darkling in their pocket?"

“The Darkness is one of the longest lasting independent comic series around,” said comiXology CEO David Steinberger. ”It’s not often that an independent comic property becomes a video game, much less two video games. That fact is a testament to The Darkness’ appeal with fans across the globe. We’re proud to be able to bring even more “Darkness” to the world with The Darkness app.”

The Darkness app debuted as part of Top Cow’s “We Create... Franchises” panel at New York Comic Con. The Darkness app will include over fifty back issues of the main series, numerous free introductory issues, crossovers, tie-in series, various collections and — coming soon — the latest issues released same-day-as-print!

New content will be added regularly, with the entire backlist of The Darkness slated to be available before the end of the year and exclusive content to be added over time.

The Darkness app is available as a free download via the iTunes App Store.
